  • We loved staying at the log cabin so much we're planning on...

    We loved staying at the log cabin so much we're planning on coming back next year! Private and secluded. Clean, warm and cosy! The kitchen was beautifully equipped (extras like a milk frother were awesome!). Beds comfortable. Thoughtful touches like the fires alight and the cabin warm on arrival. Just lovely! Thank you so much Deb!!

    As always, the lodge was a great place to stay! Nice and warm when we arrived with plenty of firewood to keep it that way. Highly recommend the place to anyway looking to stay in the area.

    The Log Lodge was in a remote location, yet within easy reach of the local town, Raetiti and the Ski town Ohakune. The lodge was wonderful. It was spacious, full of character, was clean and very comfortable. The log burning fires were lit for when we arrived and there was plenty of wood to keep the fires burning throughout our stay. The beds were comfortable and there was even toiletries provided in all the bathrooms. The hot-tub was a treat. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Amazing time
